RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

It's not only trucks but campers as well. Peoples wages have not increased that much. There must be a shift in spending or a increased lack of saving. I sense that people are living only for today and not planning for the future. The price will be paid when employment ends. People are already saying "I can't pay my bills ". If that is so they need to reduce their bills before that time comes. With a large percentage of the population now receiving government wages and/or benefits, there is no need for them to save a dime. They live for today and will receive pensions and benefits for life. Those on the opposing team must live like rats so they have a chance of keeping their home once they are too old to work.

RE: Quality of Forest River

The large holes are pretty standard Amish craftsmanship. Cut two pieces of plywood, sheetmetal or strong plastic with half a hole in each, then fasten them around the pipes. Seal any remaining gaps with the sealant of your choice.

RE: Got camper inspected at camping world. Big mistake

YOU keep going back to the same place and that IS your problem. Had that conversation with you many times before. Don't like the work, go somewhere else. It IS that easy. We never really had that one sided conversation. I have been getting vehicles inspected for 58 years and used dozens of places, the only difference is that I check their work. The one example I showed in the photo was at the largest Ford dealer in Lancaster County, had it been you, a brake failure would have happened. While you will refuse to believe anything I write, I will give a few examples below: Charged for two inspections while never completing one. Had wheel bearings filled with turnings and failed. Completely loose upper control arms, shims fell out. 35lb tires inflated to 90lb. No cotter pin in spindle. 140 ft lb lugnuts torqued to 70. Damaged hub caps. Wheel lugs stripped. Bearing grease contaminated after just 6 miles of service. New cotter pins replaced with extremely undersized pins. Brake shoes replaced needlessly and without authorization. Attempted axle jacking near the middle, stopped them and left. The few examples above were done at 8 different places, all highly recommended. Keep on believing what you want, and I'll just keep correcting the bad work if I survive it.

RE: Got camper inspected at camping world. Big mistake

Yes, there are bonehead mechanics, but not all of them are boneheads like one person on this forum like to make it sound like.. There are more professional inspection mechanics than the boneheads. So what did you think of the brake hose pictured above? I could write a book on the non-professional work I have encountered.

RE: water pressure regulators

I needed a new gauge for my Watts and was shocked at the price of them today. Watts is the best but be prepared to pay $$$! I think I might be tempted to try the Valterra adjustable for under $60 on Amazon. You can buy a gauge at any hardware store.

RE: Wierd water gauge problem

Thanks for the answers. Looked at the wiring in the gauge, but haven't been able to get to the wires at the tank yet. Will when I can move it to a better area. The water is hard here, never had problems before, but I guess there can always be a first time. Any idea how to dissolve it and still be able to drink it after flushing? Thanks again. Mike You might want to use a considerable amount of vinegar, google its use for many different ideas on how to use it.

RE: Wierd water gauge problem

If your fresh eater has a lot of minerals in it they can coat the tank walls. Most of the malfunctions on any of the tanks is not toilet paper, it is a coating of scum on the tank walls causing an electrical path between the probes.

RE: Carb Overhaul, Pointless?

Do your best to revive the old carburetor, those cheap replacements are made in China and have a real bad reputation. Do not use a tip cleaner in the jets and other holes, they can change the flow rate. Use carburetor spray cleaner with a straw to blast thru the passages and don't forget your goggles. A bristle from a paint brush is one way to probe the holes.

RE: Got camper inspected at camping world. Big mistake

Inspection?... Sounds like a racket. Until your a tech and you see what's rolling around out there on the streets. Some of it makes it scary to know it's on the road right behind You! I have had considerable damage done to my vehicles over the years by the PA State Inspection monkeys. Here is my latest damage where the monkey bent the steel brake line pulling the brake hose tightly against the coil spring. Had I not inspected their "work" it would have failed, now that is scary. https://i.imgur.com/68bh2pSl.jpg If you think this is about safety, think again. The garages have an association that lobbies for the racket. For example; I have vehicles that are exempt from emissions inspection due to low mileage but I am required to pay about the same amount to have the exempt sticker put on.

RE: trailer brakes failed, any brake experts on here?

If this "even when unconnect" means without the trailer, the problem is with the truck wiring.

RE: Equalizer Shackles Hitting Frame

I think you have 4000lb (26") springs on 3500lb axles that require 25-1/8" springs. The extra ply is a clue.

RE: 3/4 or 1' butyl tape?

Buy the width you need, just be sure it is butyl and not putty tape.

RE: Got camper inspected at camping world. Big mistake

If they actually pulled two wheels to inspect the brakes you need to pull them again to inspect the CW work. Yes, it is that bad out there.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

carlisle has rep for being the cheap tire on the market also a rep for blow outs. they make lawn mower tires ,and still trying to get that right. Yes they did, at the same time that Goodyear made the piece of **** Marathon that had major blowouts too. Need to get with the times. The Carlisle HD has not had any issues reported that I have seen. I used them on my last trailer and a good tire. Rob Yes, Goodyear twice tried to have the Marathons produced in China and gave up.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

Thank you all for the replies! I decided to bite the bullet and ordered a set of Endurance. Locally Goodyear is only exclusive to one dealer so there's no shopping around and pay the full list price. Are they available? I was told by my tire shop that production was shifted from trailer tires to passenger tires, due to the pandemic slow-down, and Endurance tires aren't available any sooner than the end of October. -Speak They show in stock at Tire Rack. There is no need to pay list price, places like Tire Rack will arrange installation.

Sounds like there is a problem in or near the truck receptacle.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

Carlisle is made in China, thus the cheap price.

RE: New to all this..

Water lines in exterior walls??? What keeps them from freezing? Not many electrical lines in exterior walls, if there are any there should be an outlet of some sort in the area.

RE: New to all this..

Do not consider mounting anything to the 4 outside walls, ceiling, floor, or any wall shared with the shower. You may be able to use a square of plywood as a backing to one of the flimsy inside walls. Many TV mounts are on the outside walls. Some trailer manufacturers use sheet metal just behind the paneling and that can be found using a strong magnet. Sheet metal screws are used for mounting in this case.

RE: New to all this..

Make your best guess as to where the studs are using a stud finder. Drill a tiny hole and insert a bent paper clip and probe side to side to see if you are in a stud or if there is one nearby. If it is a no go, fill the tiny hole and try again.
